Kuku Yalanji people

The Kuku Yalanji people are aboriginal people whose history dates back 50,000 years to the earliest human occupation of Australia. They are known to live in complete harmony with their environment, with their culture emphasizing on the importance of coexisting with the nature. They are the traditional owners of rainforests in Australia.
The Eastern Kuku Yalanji people will take the formal ownership of four national parks, including the world-heritage Daintree Rainforest. They recently entered into a formal agreement with the state government in this regard. The other rainforests covered by this agreement are Ngalba-bulal, Kalkajaka and the Hope Islands National Parks.
